25 = Silver!

A few days ago we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary.  

Much like our wedding, our anniversary was small and simple.   Dinner out with family, chocolate cheesecake, gifts, and flowers!
Because I especially cherish memories of our adventures together, I gave my husband several small gifts focusing on our family travels.

Of course, can you imagine such a day as this slipping by that didn't involve jewelry?  I've never been a diamond girl, but hinted that I would love some silver stacking rings for my "silver anniversary" and showed him my favorites.   And, sure enough, I was given this sweet package with 5 beautiful rings handmade by Gretchen Baneyx  of "Bespoken Jewelry.

My thanks to my husband for 25 happy years and these lovely rings...
and to Gretchen for making them especially for me!

They are exactly what I had hoped for!

I've always loved mixed metals, 
so I slipped my gold wedding band in between the silver stack
and they are all lovely together!
(You'll just have to ignore the aging hands
and crooked fingers!)  ;-)

Best wishes to you all!

Celebrating 25!

I don't often  post very personal things online, because, well... they are personal and I guess I'm a rather personal sort of person!  

But this one bears mentioning, I think.  Today, June 2nd, my husband and I are celebrating 25 years of marriage.   In many respects, it seems like the wedding was just last week, honestly! (Photos do reveal otherwise...)   But when I pause to think about all that has happened ("in good times and in bad"), we've clearly traveled a longer path together than it seems.  Aside from family loss and some challenging health situations, it has been a very, very good life.   I feel very fortunate to have walked this journey beside my husband, and to have the family I now have.   I cherish every moment of the 25 years.

Wishing all of YOU a great Tuesday!   Just wanted to share our special day with you!
